, president yee, i want to remind everyone from the city select meeting is this thursday, october 25, at 3:30 room 250 at city hall. it is chaired by supervisor campos and chui and commissioner mendoza and myself and we have one item and that is our ag requirements. >> i believe that there is a budget committee meeting on november the 8th. >> president yee, we are waiting for confirmation of that meeting, i believe pending a question about commissioner wynn's availability and the regular meeting of the budget and business services committee would fall on wednesday, november 7th. we have requested consideration of moving that meeting one day later to thursday november 8th, and i believe commissioner wynns is reresearching her ability and rewill finalize it. >> thank you, we are finished with this section? >> commissioner? >> yes, go ahead. >> i want to announce that the rules committee meeting. the october rules committee meeting was canceled because we need to get the rest of the elections to get the report from the advocates in sacramento, because we are not really ready with the recommen
might be representing districts, but we are one city fundamentally. [ applause ] and just like your great supervisor david chiu supports things that happen in my district i want to support north beach and this part of the city. even more important, this project, this fight about the north beach branch library, about joe dimaggio, fundamentally was about whether we were going to be moving forward as a city. whether we were going to focus just on the past or also on the future of our city. whether we were going to focus on what recreation was like 25 or 50 years ago or what needs to happen today and in the future in san francisco? and we won that battle and we sent a clear message that that city has a strong future for everyone and we're going to make it happen. thank you and congratulations. [applause] >> thank you, scott. appreciate it. i did mention that the library is thriving? did i mention that last year we had 7.2 million visitor to our libraries? it's exciting to know that and it's the only larguishan library that did not suffer any reductions or cutbacks during the economic
center. as you know we generally meet at city hall but today is a very special day that you will learn about as we unfold our agenda and thank you again for coming. i'm going to turn the table over to mayor lee who is going to give some opening remarks. >> thank you. good afternoon everyone and welcome to our turk street emergency operations center. first of all i want to thank everybody. anybody wearing orange gets a special treat in my eyes today. anyway we're still celebrating and i never knew that wearing orange and the giants and sports will be so closely connected to what we do in emergency management but it is and it is for good reason because our city's success is really dependent upon inviting thousands more people here to enjoy our resources here in the city, to tax us a little bit on it, but this is what we do as a great international city. all of you have a very distinct role in all of this and it's my pleasure to begin telling you how proud i am and the months of september and particularly october have all been full of great events, and numerous events, and sometimes
yesterday our city celebrated a huge victory in the world of sports; right. and today we're celebrating another victory and for the waterfront, for nature and you can feel it. yesterday after the noise and the craziness -- breathe; right. like today -- you can feel it. it's slower. it's calmer and if you look out there you absorb the place, and we are in one of the most special and beautiful parts of the city and to celebrate an incredible project. san francisco's waterfront is more than just simply the border of our city. in its edge lies san francisco best recognizal opportunities, our most engaging parks and enormous potential to have one of the vibrant waterfronts of the world and in partnership we are doing this along all sides of san francisco for all san franciscos to enjoy. these projects as the mayor and monique said are made possible by the parks bond. four years ago it was approved by 72% of city voters and allowed us to address more than a billion dollars worth of deferred maintenance needs in our parks and to cultivate what once was an industrial waterfront into somethin
is always a wonderful experience. a new facility dedicated to serving students as is city college. this particular educational facility, though, has a long history and struggle, a lot of false starts and reboots and now it's here. i've been working on this along with many other people for about 5 years and i just wanted to thank some of the people that i've been working with and i'm not going to mention everyone because there are so many people who have, are responsible for this wonderful facility. but the person i want to thank first is our honorable trustee lawrence wong, who this would not have been, we would not be here if it was not for him. i also want to thank someone who i worked very closely with during the construction of this building and that's our, that's our previous chancellor, dr. don griffin, the chancellor who built this facility through many trials and tribulations but he got it done on time and on budget, which is a wonderful, wonderful statement. i also want to thank some of the board members who, the members of the facilities committee who every year -- ever
city of san francisco mayor ed lee. >> audience: let's go giants! let's go giants. >> let's go giants. wow how thrilled we're are to have the world series champions back in san francisco. what a year it has been. it's been the year of the orange dragon. yeah! . orange october. but you know we have celebrated, we have screamed, we have shouted all year long and once again the giants have captured our imagination and team work and they did the hard work. often we look at sports and we have super stars and we have super stars but there is a motto on the clubhouse wall and it says "25 guys, one common goal, win today". [cheers and applause] and they certainly live up to this motto. when i see young people, all of the city supporting giants gear it's about the impact of this team. it is hard work, perseverance and hard work and work with each other. did bruce bochy and these 25 guys quick when they lost the first two games against cincinnati? no. did they accept the inevitable with st. louis? no. they carried on with determination and experts and pundits predicted that this sa
. in the maya city of copan, a jeweler fashioned rare shell and jade for his powerful lord. in mexico, living artisans echo the economy of a vanished civilization. and in teotihuacan, evidence of mass production has now been unearthed. tiny faces of clay reflect the men and women who made them a thousand years ago. on the other side of the world, in the ancient roman city of ostia, huge merchant ships were part of an economy much like our own. and today, the tanners of morocco still practice their ancient craft, living proof that economies have evolved out of the past. everyone who has ever lived has been part of an economic system. iel bote grande...mil pesos! economic systems are simply the ways people produce, distribute and consume things -- everything and anything, from tortillas to stocks and bonds. for 10,000, 10,000 an eighth. today, as in the past, economic systems lie at the heart of how a society is organized. archaeologists search for these systems because they believe economies hold the key to understanding ancient societies. archaeologist william sanders. the economy of any give
much research i saw this program, and sf state and the city as what ron would say "a match made in heaven" because computer engineering is what i call a hybrid between electrical engineering and computer science because it world has many different sectors and you want to be versatile. you don't want to -- well, some of us would prefer to be experts in one field. for example programming or making robots, but i think being versed in both sides of the spectrum tells you tremendously understanding programming, electronics, signal processing, networking, chip design -- i could go on and on, and i think this will give us more opportunities in the area rather than being skilled in one thing. now i'm a senior and i am graduating in the spring, fingers crossed and i couldn't have made a better choice. i think computer engineering was the best choice for me. like i said opportunities are not always readily available. we all get nervous about that. sometimes we need to take charge and take those opportunities so last summer i decided to take it a step further and i applied for probabl
francisco is about individual's rights and people come to the city to be who they are without concerns of bigging on tree and scorn. nudity is one more freedom that san francisco has championed. we took a step back with the towel law. let's not take another step backwards. i leave you with this quote from an rand. those that deny individual rights cannot be defenders for the majority. this legislation is using a sledge hammer to kill a flea. i urge you to vote no. thank you. >> thank you. next speaker. >> good morning. i am bruce dodea. as a child my father had a very racist sort of perspective on things. he felt that black people were bad people. i don't think that has a child i would have developed an exposure to thinking that black people were bad if not for my father. as an adult i have developed a broader opinion of things in which i think that i'm more open minded, so when i hear people discuss how disturbing this might be to a child i see it more of a perspective that the parent brings to that household opposed to some impression that a child would have about nudity.

[applause] >> leader pelosi asked me what is of going to say after reverend frong. i didn't have a chant rate for that. this is a great day for san francisco. this is a labor of love. we know the economic and transit values of this. as an agency we are committed and not only committed to bringing this fruition on time but under budget as well. is that good? and we will continue the vil against of all of our assets and focusing on the priority number one is safety. this day is possible because of so many people that did so much work here. senator leno is here and the assessor. we have a wonderful working relationship with fta regional leaders and mtc and lazarus from the mtc board and the china chamber of commerce and the san francisco chamber of commerce and the market street association and the business improvement district and joe an hayes and mike from the building and trades construction cou
compared to other codes, governing nudity in the city and i move that we forward this to the board with a positive recommendation. >> supervisor chu. >> thank you. i do want thank supervisor wiener for bringing this legislation to us and the thoughtful comments. i also want to thank members of the public that came to speak. i listened intently for those for and against the legislation. i will be supporting the legislation. what was compelling to me was the people that lived in the neighborhood. there were people that live and oppose the legislation and i recognize that from the comments today but the idea of a sense of community, people from all walks of life, whether you're a family, whether you didn't have a family and be safe and comfortable in the neighborhood was something that was very compelling to me, so i just wanted to express that. i think someone who is against it also said this is a community we want to be part of and it's one where you can live and respect each other and i do think because of how people feel strongly about public nudity it's important that the r

in other countries for the sport. san francisco is an inter national city so we will probably have additional events that no one's thought of in terms of not only celebrating the 50ses but emphasizing inter national perspective on the sport of football. that is a key strength. like any franchise, they are looking for more market gain, this is where it will happen. >> we are going to ask rich to come up. if this group could stay and answer questions. but rich has a special way to throw this out. once again thank you to goodby silverstein for everything. >> i like that. my birthday it rained every day. snowed. what is football without -- >> wet weather for me. >> has to fit him just right. take that off.

[cheering and applauding] look at this amazing display. this looks incredible. and right in front of me is the press riser. and here's from all over the world. there are two press risers and they were built especially for this event. and as you can see, there are so many cameras here. they're fr

. great cities need great public transportation systems, and you know what? you know what makes our city great with all these leaders? they listen. they listen to our communities. they understand -- because for years our communities pleaded we need better transportation systems what makes our leaders so great they listen and they act. that is so wonderful. that is what standard that we have for all of our public officials. secretary lahood if you could thank president obama from all of us. yes.

other very progressive cities we have all sorts of laws that say you can do things and there are limits to what you can do. someone mentioned ian rand and i that was very appropriate. we live in a community. we live in a community that is densely populated and we all have to be able to live together, and i don't agree with ian rand and it's all about you and as an individual and i can do anything i want no matter what, no matter the impact on other people, so colleagues i think this legislation is a reasonable response to a real issue. it is a very narrow piece of legislation, particularly compared to other codes, governing nudity in the city and i move that we forward this to the board with a positive recommendation. >> supervisor chu. >> thank you. i do want thank supervisor wiener for bringing this legislation to us and the thoughtful comments. i also want to thank members of the public that came to speak. i listened intently for those for and against the legislation. i will be supporting the legislation. what was compelling to me was the people that live
with the city on this. another reason to do this process if we don't the surplus land created is sold off to the highest bidder by cal trans and that is not appropriate and city college has an important role to play here and they most likely will be the people that inherit this land but we shouldn't just give it to them without understanding of what they contribute to the situation in the larger community. thank you. >> thank you very much. any other member of the public like to comment? >> robert [inaudible]. i just want to irnd score when i hear long-term and midterm plans and we don't do anything now that prohibits doing the right thing in the long-term so i am concerned about movements that prohibit us from doing the larger version in the long run so i am certainly hopeful that our bart representatives and sf mta folks are camping out at each other's door steps with these improvements so we don't make a bad mistake on this and prohibit us doing the right thing in the long run. thank you. >> thank you very much. if there are no other members of the public we will close public comm
city. i am one of the families that, although my father worked here, we couldn't afford to live here. even today i can barely make ends meet to get my family housed. there are three of us living in a studio apartment. so, i know how difficult it is to find affordable housing. and really excited about this opportunity and looking forward to a partnership with the community and the mayor's office of housing and making this work. so, thank you to all of you and everyone that's worked on this. >> sounds like a motion to me. >> indeed it is. >> [speaker not understood]. >> yes, i shouldn't take anything for being involved. i'm very new to this. i checked out the station and it is obviously in need of improvement, [speaker not understood] moving forward with this. >> sounds like a second to me. >> it is. >> just bring up the fact this is such an important connection for city college students to make that area more walkable and the directors might remember we had an e-mail from the city college student a few weeks ago who was complaining about something that probably can help resolve that.
for the media trucks to park here. now, we've got trucks from almost all the news stations in the city becauseertionv r everyone is going to be coretionv the big event. we have the microwave towers going. they're going to be getting the live feed from the big parade. the anticipation is over 1 million fans. so, if you're a giants fan this is really the place to be. we're standing on polk street where the street has been completely closed off with the exception of some chairs that are set up out front as there are thousands of fans behind the chairs. it really just looks like a sea of orange and black and there are more fans to the right of us here. everybody is so excited. and they really are gathered all over to see the world series champ. we're standing at a security checkpoint but we're going to go get an exclusive and check out the press risers. so, let's go. thousands of fans in the crowd, everyone is so excited. how are you guys doing? [cheering and applauding] >> everyone is excited at city hall. they've got a huge seating area out front here to make sure everybody gets a good v
